Do you remember when the last time you had a really good night’s sleep was? Of course, many people sleep between 6 and 8 hours a day, but this doesn’t mean that they have quality sleep. But, because they are following the unwritten rule of sleeping for certain period of time, they don’t mind the fact that they don’t have a good night’s sleep.
So, what exactly is a good night’s sleep and how can we achieve that?
According to some experts, a good night’s sleep can be defined as a sleep that includes eight hours of sleep without waking up. The fact is that there are many tips and advice about how people can fall asleep easily. Feng Shui techniques, lamps based on Himalayan pink salt, lowering the temperature in the room where you are sleeping – these are some of the things people do in order to finally fall asleep.
It is crucial to remember that each individual needs 8-hour quality sleep every night with no exceptions. You can’t expect to feel a difference if you sleep for eight hours only two nights in a week. Now, if you understand this, it is time to learn how to get this amount of sleep with the help of essential oils.
If you are like most modern people, then you probably know something about these oils, so feel free to skip the paragraphs dedicated about the basic facts related to essential oils. The oil mentioned in the title of this article used for the creation of a homemade spray is based on three ingredients: chamomile, magnesium.
Chamomile is one of the favorite flower and herb of tea lovers, gardeners and people who enjoy nature. This is a soothing herb with pleasant scent. If it is used in the form of essential oil it can improve sleep.
Lavender is a very interesting flower that acts as a relaxing and soothing herb. When it comes in the form of oil, this flower is very powerful. In most cases, dropping just a couple of drops on the pillow will do the job. The vast majority of people rely on lavender essential oil diluted in water in order to avoid side effects. In any case, children should avoid this oil.
Magnesium is an essential mineral mentioned in many scientific works related to human health. This mineral can be used both externally and internally and has proven to be very effective in cases of insomnia. Magnesium oil usually triggers tingling in the skin and this is very common in people who lack magnesium in their body.
According to some experts, this oil should be used on the skin of the feet because this is where our skin is toughest. Although magnesium oil is not really an oil, people use this term because of its appearance. The good news is that you can prepare it at home or purchase it in stores.
Why People Need Foot Sprays?

Once you put the feet in the water, you will notice the change in its consistency and color. Some people say that this is just a placebo effect, but who cares when it makes you feel better?
